  • A question about Phishing Filters

    I would just like to ask a straightforward question about Phishing Filters, since I don't understand this at all.

    What setting should I have checked on my computer in your opinion?

    There are 3 choices in my Internet Options.

    Disable Phishing Filter

    Turn off automatic website checking

    Turn on automatic website checking.

    Thanks for your opinions on this matter. I really don't have a clue what this should be set at.

    For the most part, it's probably best to set it at "Turn off automatic website checking." This way if you ever suspect a website to be a phishing site, you can click on the icon at the bottom of the browser to have it "check" to see if it is a reported phishing site. Having it always check would lead to many bothersome "false positive" messages.
